This juice is more like a smoothie because you blend the juice with an avocado.
3 stalks of celery
2 cups spinach
15 red grapes
Juice all ingredients except the avocado.
Blend the juice with avocado and drink right away.
I get my juice recipes from JuiceRecipes.com. It has all the health info. Amazing site!
I made this for the Valentines Day Party we are having for Joaquin’s Playgroup. It doesn’t have much sugar, so if you’re making this for adults I suggest using less water and a little more sugar. I like it just how it is!
What You Need
5 Oranges (save 1 for slicing)
6 Lemons (save 1 for slicing)
Juicing Tool (mine is pictured below)
1 pint of Strawberries
1/4 Cup sugar (or more to your taste)
The How To
First you have to juice your fruit. Juice 4 of the oranges, all of your tangerines, and 5 lemons. I used this juicer below, or you can use a hand juicer. Squeezing the juice out just won’t cut it. You’ll miss out on a lot of juice. If you don’t have a juicing tool and have to make this right away I suggest you press and roll your fruit on the counter before cutting it in half. This will release the juice. Then after squeezing the juice out bite down on the skin to squeeze out more juice. Below is a picture of the juicer I use.
Add about 10 cups of water. My fruit was really juicy and my lemons really tarty. I added 12 cups and divided my batch into two pitchers. I added half of the sugar to each pitcher and stirred. Remember that I made this for toddlers, so if you want it a little stronger add your water in batches of 2-3 cups and try it as you go.
Cut the remaining lemon and orange in slices and add to your juice. You can cut up strawberries like hearts to make a “squeeze my heart” theme, or leave them out.
I am going to serve this in an apothecary drink dispenser over ice! Pictures soon to come!
1/2 cup coffee grounds (what ever your normal coffee is)
1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 Cup frozen cherries
1/2 Cup frozen pineapple
